The Broad, located in downtown Los Angeles, is one of the city's most loved museums. The museum often features fun and interesting exhibits not seen elsewhere around the city.
For those that don't know, The Broad is a contemporary art museum located near the Walt Disney Concert Hall. The museum opened on September 20, 2015, and has drawn thousands of curious visitors to its galleries ever since.
If you've never visited The Broad before I encourage you to plan your first visit.

Please be advised that the musuem rotates exhibits and the above mentioned exhibits may or may not be on display during your visit. That being said, I guarantee you'll still have plenty to see during your visit regardless of what is on display.

Best time to visit The Broad
The best time to visit The Broad will depend on your personal tolerance for crowds and traffic.
To avoid both crowds and traffic, I would plan a visit for opening on Saturday or Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m. Weekday afternoons may also be a good time to visit to avoid crowds as well.
Though again, museum tickets do sell out so you won't be alone in the galleries. Either way, this is a rather large museum, so you'll have plenty of space to spread out.
Be sure to mark your calendar for this Wednesday July 28th to get your tickets for next month.
